Information Resources, Inc. notes that for the 52-week period ending January 27, 2008, sales of Just for Men hair color in supermarkets, drug stores and mass outlets (excluding Wal-Mart) stood at $88,618,240—a dollar-sales increase of almost five percent over a year ago.

Best service: Don’t cover gray; take off five years with “gray reduction, blending or fusion.”
